'We're winning the lot': Some Man City fans rejoice as club announce first signing of the window
Man City have confirmed their first signing of the window as Scott Carson joins the club on a permanent basis.
The goalkeeper had been at City for the past two seasons on loan from Derby County.
However, with Carson becoming a free agent this summer, the Premier League champions have now added the veteran shot-stopper permanently on a one-year contract.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Carson said about the transfer: “It’s a pleasure and a privilege to be part of the setup here at City,”
“To be around Pep and his backroom staff is fantastic and I feel I have learnt so much since I joined in 2019.”
The 35-year-old added: “To commit for another year was such an easy decision. I want to continue pushing the other goalkeepers we have here and I want to make sure my experience rubs off on them.”
Indeed, Carson made just one appearance last season in City’s 4-3 win over Newcastle United. However, supporters have grown attached to the veteran keeper over the past two seasons.
And fans were delighted that the former Derby star had joined the club on a full-time basis.
Here’s what some fans had to say on Twitter about Carson signing for Man City…
